Frist in the hearts of his countrymen

Hot on the heels of finding out that he is one of the most unpopular politicians in the United States, just slightly ahead of John Kerry, Bill Frist announced today that he will not be seeking the Presidency in 2008, and seemed to indicate he may be leaving politics for a long time, if not forever.

He said that he wanted to return to medicine, to get back to being a doctor.

I can't help but wonder how the AMA and the boards of whatever state he intends to practice medicine in could possibly certify him.

Frist used to adopt cats from animal shelters under the guise of wanting a pet in order to kill them and dissect them as part of his "studying" medicine while he was in college.

He stated in a televised interview a few years ago that the HIV pathogen that causes AIDS could be transferred through saliva, tears, and sweat, and when pressed on the matter said that he could not say that it was possible but that he could also not "rule it out."

He diagnosed Terri Schiavo by watching a videotape of her and pronounced her to be self-aware and conscious of events around her, to the extent that he advocated that the government get involved in making the personal decisions of her immediate family for them.

I never thought I would say these words:

Bill Frist, please stay in politics.
